Tommy Drennan and The Monarchs
From Limerick
 played a varied programme of big ballads, chart hits and rock 'n' roll, and,
when Tommy Drennan sang "The Holy City" or "Boolavogue",
the show literally stopped and punters crowded around the stage.

Numerous appearances on TV , shows such as " The Late Late Show", "
The Showband Show" and I.T.V:'s "New Faces", The Monarchs
released three L.P. records and quite a few singles.
"Oh Holy Night" went to No.1 in the Irish charts at Christmas 1971 and singles like
"Molly", "Connemara Cradle Song ", My Prayer", "I Really Don't Want To Know"
and their 4-track E.P. "Ballad Time" are still kept in collections throughout Ireland.
